Mugicha (Barley) One-Pot Teabags
For this premium barley tea, Ippodo selects six-row barley, which is densely packed with grains, and roasts it nice and slow. This barley tea boasts a fine aroma, refreshes as it glides down the throat, and has a pleasant aftertaste of refined sweetness. It's ideal for everyday rehydration.
In order to bring out the fine properties of barley tea, we fill the teabags with coarsely cracked barley grains. Great for everyday tea at home, and also makes a nice gift.
The key to achieving a light, refreshing taste is to avoid brewing the teabag on the stovetop while boiling the water. The tea will become too strong if left to steep in hot water for too long.

- Wait about 1 hour before drinking
How to Prepare Hot
- Put 1 teabag into a pot or other large container and add 1 liter (1 quart) of boiled water

This is the fine, delicate barley-luscious tea of my dreams. I haven't been able to find it since being in South Korea.
It save my life during a recent four day power outage
I been drinking a cold pitcher of this every day now, too good. I forget to drink water a lot but this is like water but with some extra flavor and I’ve really come around to it very quickly. Definitely a good one to keep in the arsenal, also appreciate that it only takes abt an hour to cold brew cause I’m used to ones that are more like 6-8, with mugicha the lead time from “wish I was sippin” to “actively sippin” is very short!
Just in time for the summer, we cold brew this delicious barley tea, easily did 3 x 1 liter on the same tea bag following the instructions 1 hour in chill water. Highly recommended
Absolutely superb flavor and very easy to prepare.
I love the refreshing taste of this mugicha brewed with chilled filtered water for an hour, as recommended. The glass teapot and its lid with built-in sieve holds a generous 3 cups.
This tea has a subtly sweet, almost chocolatey flavor without any of the mustiness I’ve experienced with other brands. (I also enjoy the tea hot in the winter.) I’m so glad Ippodo now has a store in the USA, because shipping is a lot quicker than from Kyoto! Will definitely purchase again.
